We'll read short excerpts of writing from master Minnesota ("True North") creative nonfiction writers—such as Kao Kalia Yang, David Mura, Tom Rademacher, Amy Thielen—to learn how they develop character, setting, and dialogue; tense and time (flashback, flash forward); scene, summary, and reflection. We'll employ these bedrocks of memoir in crafting our own artful stories and essays. We'll also work with writing prompts and will discuss, write, and revise throughout class time. Bring a bag lunch; we'll eat while we write and break as needed.
